know the basic military training environment is highly susceptible to the abuse of power, with established institutional safeguards to prevent misconduct by instruct druce. these safeguards are designed to dissuade misconduct very strong as sharp or selection screening and training process and to deter misconduct are an effective system of detection and accountability. leaders play a critical role because they must constantly monitor safeguards for weaknesses and make corrections as necessary. moreover, training is struck druce had a responsibility to uphold our core values and hold themselves accountable for helping to detect those who violate our standards. in a properly functioning system that minimizes misconduct, most instructors will be dissuaded from inappropriate behavior and a few who are not will be detected and held accountable for their actions. leadership will have good insight into the effect of miss that the institutional safeguards and the instruct druce will police themselves. returning now to the three questions of what happened in basic literary trainin

is the contributing environment that is lending itself. a lot of the police officers have to be at a certain rank and have to be kept on the contract as a source of the sort of securing full time to permanent status with protection. this is one of the conditions that actually makes it much easier on superiors and senior members of the security establishment to basically pressure them into taking questionable activities. if you don't pull the trigger then i will endure contract by the end of this year because you are in a contract you are basically not protected. i would -- you know, i would question the assumption that the securities sector reform is necessarily aimed at, you know, disempowering are dismantling the securities sector, and i would actually say that there are a lot of measures, a lot of proposals in the case of egypt that would strengthen the status of the living conditions and the working conditions of the egyptian police. >> we think that this idea of the reform versus strengthening. when we talk about strengthening, are we talking about more weapons, more capabilities that they c
is that on your priority list? >> for me having been the chairman of the environment committee twice, i have spent my -- a lot of my career greeting voters in nevada and doing things that i think are environmentally important. climate change is an extremely important issue for me and i hope we can address it reasonably as we have seen with the storms that are overwhelming our country in the world. we need to do something about it. thank you. >> good afternoon. let me start by offering my congratulations to president obama and the first lady and the vice-president. like many americans i was hoping that this election would turn out differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and month
. what is different about this environment is that the bush tax rate will expire. we will revert to the rates under clinton for everyone unless president obama signed an extension. after this campaign, that would be pretty shocking. he ran explicitly but as a candidate to say that he will raise taxes on the top. unless he suddenly decides that, i didn't mean it, it does not really matter all that much what house speaker thinks. the tax cut will expire unless obama is willing to extend it. that changes the whole dynamic. virtually all of the republicans have decided the broker norquist pledged not to raise tax rates. if the tax cuts expire at the end of the year and then in january you extended for 97% of americans, the new never voted to raise tax rates. your only cutting taxes. it is possible for something like that -- when the speaker said that yesterday, it was not really reflecting the world that he now lives in. unless the president is willing to extend the tax cuts, they will not be extended. >> i have a question for you. to what extent will there be a major -- and the repu
was working. my sympathy for them only extends so far. they had not trapped in this hyper-partisan environment. they can change it. they can change their leaders, they can change the rules, and i go back to being senators. lamar alexander left of the leadership very quietly saying he wanted to be free to make the bipartisan agreements that he remembered when he was a senate staff person. he was basically saying that the senate is not working the way it is supposed to work and i am not working the way i am supposed to work. they can change it. host: back to the funds, on our line for democrats. caller: good morning and thank you very much for cspan. i'm proud uaw member from upstate new york and i think the last great senate was the 88th and 89 congress and it took 67 votes to invoke cloture to break a filibuster. i focus on the civil-rights act and the debate on this of rights act in 1964. it is hard to believe it could happen today but back then you have the majority leader michael lance hill and the minority leader -- leader everett dirksen and they both co-sponsored the bill. dirksen was in
their positions as we go forward. but i do think there was a lot that changed tuesday and i think that environment is somewhat reflected in the statement that john boehner made yesterday afternoon and i was being told comments he had on a conference call with his membership about how they had to change the way they operate. but when you look at the fact that you had a very significant victory by the president who campaigned on the issue of fiscal responsibility and very specifically the issue that makes this lame duck problematic that makes next year problematic is there going to be a change in tax rates. and the president campaigned on that. the exit polls showed people by large majority favered that, 60% nationwide said that they favered an increase in taxes, some wanted it on everybody, most wanted it just on people over $250,000 a year. most democratic senate candidates campaigned on that. they won 25 of 33 open seats. 75% of the open seats. and so i think they are coming back with a lot of wind in their sales. unlike the last session of congress where the resur gent republican majority came b
. this is an environment, the dodd-frank, the market sentiment that demands capital. they do trading. they will have issues. what does this mean for the big wall street firms, if you look at the smallest, it is warm and stanley. this is a firm to watch. i really respect james gorman. a great guy. they still have a capital markets arm. this is what i think will go on at morgan stanley. they will shrink that. they were talking about selling various trading components. i think there is no dow that that will happen did they are the smallest of the wall street players. whenever you hear something about the market, that trading are still there and so taking risk, people sell the stock. you have to worry about people lending you money. watch work and stanley going forward. see how much they adopt the brokerage model. if they stay in the middle here, they will have problems. lori: are you forecasting a breakup for morgan stanley? charlie: they will get out of certain risk-taking circumstances. my gut is, they fell. unloading capital markets. i do not think they will do the whole capital market, but the commodity b

to focus on these policies and create a pro-growth environment so that these businesses will have confidence in washington again and they will invest in their organizations and hire people. we are never going to create a pro-growth environment when they are doing things on twelvemonth plans or 18 months. it is not acceptable. look at what just happened in benghazi. we have to protect ourselves. we were attacked here on 9/11 on our own soil. host: when was there ever a period in our history where what was going on in washington guaranteed someone going into business that their business is going to be a success? and the success was not based on the performance of the business or the ability of the person who had the business to sell the product or service that he was putting out? guest: when in history has that happened? host: you are saying that people who are either in business of trying to go in business are not doing that because they are afraid what is happening here in washington. what i am is saying is, go ahead and take that chance. put your business together and see if the
the environment. secondly, you talk at one point about the european parliament being an important partner for you and all the crisis related issues. white and has the fiscal pack gotten to the point that it has? when it's already clear that has two points that are conflicting with e.u. law in material and in formal terms, and that hasn't been regulated the european level. and implementation of the pact by the commission, well, how can we go along with that if the parliament is going to be excluded from that? you will have to deal with that on the first of the first. that is to come into force, but it will be impossible to implement it so how are you going to reconcile that contradiction? thank you. [speaking in native tongue] >> translator: chancellor, let me thank you very much for coming in today. i think it's been an interesting discussion. with certain heard a lot of political rhetoric. wavered not much economic reality from some members but that we are. we're used to it in this chamber. the october revolution was something to be celebrated, but chance of, i wish you well in a meeting with my
situations but also to look at the bigger public policy, that of the environment and that of climate change and global warming. we need to be cognizant of our stewardship over the -- our planet. we need to make certain that if these data that are compiled are telling us that there is increased prescription, for instance, over the catskills watershed, in my district, let's respond accordingly to sound public policy as it relates to our environment and our stewardship of the environment and let's be cognizant of the needs in response of this measure. you know, i'll just say this, and i know you want to add to this discussion here. i'll say this, in a time where government perhaps has been hit hard by critics out there suggesting there's no role for public sector here, we need to reduce government, i can tell you people addressing the war room, as they designated it, putting together all of the professionalism and academics and people who operate these programs and how well trained, watching that compilation, that collaborative effort of these profession alcs who are responding to public -- pr
of moving on, i think it's going to be tough, but i think the president was right that the environment's different. and i think his remarks later today, which are a huge deal in this process, i think will reflect the fact that he sees a different environment, a different possibility. the senate's ready to do a deal. and speaker boehner is a big part of the final solution, and i think he looks like he's ready to do a deal. >> i think just to get you off the hook a little bit, i think one of the keys here is what you didn't anticipate and very few people anticipated was not just that obama would win, but that he would win as decisively as he won and that the republicans would face the setbacks they faced in the senate and that so much of the political environment that's not just the presidential but across the board would be such a repudiation, such a chastening moment for republicans. that's been a big part of why the fever might break because it's broader. >> the senate defeats for me were far more chilling. >> right. >> as a republican. again, we absorbed it the first night. i remembe
environment for investment. it's a balance. but we feel that we're on the right track. >> you know, when you have u.s. lawmakers are seeing what happened to your economy doing the austerity measures, it's given pause to how we handle our own fiscal issues. and why there is this sense of -- that the united states is afraid of doing -- being as astere as you guys were. basically you went back into recession. >> we now emerged from it. we cross our fingers we will stay out of it. you have advantages. you have the reserve currency. you're the biggest economy in the world. we did not have that. we're not part of the eurozone. if we had not stuck with the deficit reduction program our borrowing cost for sterling would have gone through the roof whereas partly because, largely because of the program that he is pursuing now, he can borrow money for the british state at lower rates than possible in 600 years. that makes a difference. >> let's talk about the two big crises that i think are going to be on the desks of this alliance, if you will, and that's syria and iran. first of all, in syria e what
, the environment is never going to be better than it is today. let's go ahead and deal with this issue, put this issue largely in the rear view mirror, and let's focus on the greatness of this nation. >> all right. republican senator bob corker of tennessee. many thanks for your time. great to talk with you. >> thank you. >>> next up, a democrat who's a member of the budget committee will join me. what kind of a deal would he make with the gop to avoid the fiscal cliff? begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh!

do not want to think about them as an increase. just stop the cut in an environment where it is absolutely essential. i had no children. maybe i will not feel it did not much. but like the last caller said i am ready to pay my their share. and the thing is that fairness is not guaranteed. but this is where i put my emphasis, what is democracy? we have got to try to work and create fairness. a graduated income tax is the best way to pay according to the ability to pay. the more you give, the more you pay. what is complicated? guest: the caller brings up a great point. this idea of tax fairness. who should pay more? another caller brought up before. what this caller is scion is that something that the president echoed again and again on the campaign trail. and he feels like this as part of the government moving forward. part of the tax fairness issue is at the wealthy should pay more to help pay down the deficit. the other caller was saying he feels like more people should pay federal income taxes to pay down the federal it deficit. this is sort of the two ways that the part
and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and heather wilson. the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. -- let me give you an example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. -- and heidi was able to overcome that. it is true that the president won north dakota slightly less than -- mitt romney won north dakota at slightly less than the president won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is ea
countries that have more competitive environment and taxes are one of them. yes, we have to reform the tax code. when you do that, i will get more revenue. it is guaranteed. again, sort of as i was talking about earlier. this is opportunities here. this is opportunity for us as a country. if you look at the congressional budget analysis and joint tax committee analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact and growth, all will lead to more growth, whether corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> right but if the president insists as he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and, fought over tax rates, rising tax rates, he didn't ice the words rates himself but jay carney, the white house press secretary said the president will veto any bill that extends the current tax rates. if he insists that tax rates go up for those making over $250,000, what's, what would your recommendation be to the republican congress and senate? >> first having worked in two white houses i believe a president does have a veto over the press secretary. thank goodness b
the way we govern our country. it is a good, therapeutic way to look in a nonhostile environment as to where we need to go with the country. >> john: the fact it is a nonhostile environment means it won't be covered on most cable news outlets. i'm looking over the roster of speakers. of course you're there as well as james carvel and mary madeline. i guess their merge is a model for this kind of event. you have trent lott and ted strickland, jonathan capehart and another married couple, avalon and hoover. it seems like a really, really inspiring roster of people. so i guess let me ask you why did things turn out the way they did last week on election day? >> you know, first of all, it was close but i think that -- you know, most of the pundits got it right. that is i think the people sense that the economy was getting better while slowly things were kind of turning in the right direction. and i think they were willing to give the president the benefit of the doubt under those circumstances. i also think that the
investment is going to follow countries that have a more competitive environment in taxes is one of them's a we have to reform the tax code and when you do that you will get more revenue. it's guaranteed. again, as i was talking at earlier there are opportunities here for us as a country and if you look at the congressional budget analysts this and go to the tax committee analysis what tax reform could mean in the economic growth and all of them will lead to more growth with this corporate tax reform. estimate of the president says what he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over rising tax rates. jay carney said they would veto any bill that extends the current tax rate so if he insists that tax rates go out for those making over to under $50,000 will would your recommendation before the conference in the senate? >> working in to white house is i believe a president does have a veto because i like the president's comments better than jay carney's comments. i think jay carney mabey was a little behind the curve on that because look, it makes no sense to ta

high-price, high continue ticket items that expand our capabilities in a combat environment. they cannot be obtained and fall under itar protocol for the u.s. government. so we don't have to worry about them falling into enemy hands. so i think they're just worried about they divulged anything about the equipment and didn't ask for permission and got paid, as well. >> so let me ask you about that part of the equation. because i know we don't pay our military enough. and that's just true. that's just true for what they give for their country. >> very true. >> but the navy s.e.a.l.s, these are a special unit. they have a reputation to uphold. so why go out and take this chance? >> well, as s.e.a.l.s, we would never give any information that would put ours or our comrades at risk, no matter what branch of service they're in. so we know exactly what to say and what not to say. so i think they wanted to make the game as authentic as possible without giving away the farm. they didn't talk about tactics or techniques or procedures. they just showed some pieces of equipment. they di
discussions would lead to a more stable likelihood of a more stable environment and i would put that forward as a way of engaging other countries and hopefully by closing the gap which i believe has happened over the last several years between the military industry to historically working for the military for the common good for the country in which we are operating and this will lead to more stability in a larger sense as a part of society along with the rule of law and stable economy and thriving business, eight parts society. >> i have an answer that is quite controversial that doesn't have to do with the military perce but has to do with the policy on how much u.s. controlled the development of medical devices and drugs and it has become so problematic that big pharma and medical technology developers are now going to other countries to do clinical trials and the work that is necessary to prove there are drugs and devices that work successfully in humans. this is a very backward way of promoting national security in the context of preventing people from disease and injury through advance

the environment for investment. in the dodd-frank bill, there is an amendment that make select all -- makes it law that the extractive industry, mining, oil, gas, registered on the new york stock exchange, it is law that they have to publish what they paid for those mining rights. it sounds obvious, doesn't it? the truth is that right now, the american petroleum institute's is suing the sec to try and overthrow that. that is astonishing. i know people and oil companies who are amazing people, and it is very important to energy here. in this case it is not a political issue. europe and america are going to make this outlandish opacity, and if that is not a word, i would like to suggest it to the oxford dictionary. when you publish what you pay, then the civil societies in those regions get to hold the government to account. that is one of the best things you can do to stimulate business investment. thank you. >> i am stating international development so this is close to my heart. how we develop the perspective and the mindset and incentivize people -- >> i am sorry i missed that. >> the whole quest

. >> so jim has just put a serious policy issue on the table. this is a partisan, you know, environment that we're in. we're inside the u.s. capitol here, or steps from the capitol inside a committee room. there's not much that happens in the washington today because of the partisan fighting. um, is there room after this agenda where we just spent $6 billion in a campaign beating each other's brains out and came up with the same president, the same congress and the same senate for serious, bipartisan efforts on curing diseases like alzheimer's or any other short of agenda? ralph or stan, we start with somebody from a partisan perspective. >> well, let me put the this on my wish list. i'm sure this seems like it's going to be a partisan comment. the -- i looked at ralph's reaction to this, um, where he said that if we look at what the pattern of who votes in the 2010 election, if that is replicated in 2014, um, then we will, then we can have a big pushback against the democrats, okay? the -- now, that's a formula, because that's what happened in 2010. 2010 set up 2012. that is, the extre
there was a lot that changed tuesday. that environment is somewhat reflected in the statement that speaker boehner made yesterday afternoon. i was told about comments he made on a conference call about how they had to change the way they operate. you had a very significant victory by the president who campaigned on the issue of fiscal responsibility. is there going to be a change in tax rates? , 60% favored that nationwide. most wanted it on people over $250,000 a year. they wanted 25 of 30 open senate seats. i think they are coming back with a lot of wind in their sails, like the last session of congress or the resurgent republican majority came back with something of a mandate. it is hard for them to argue that there is much of that mandate. they lost seven seats. i think they had a jury mandate but not a mandate. they did well. they perhaps maintain their majority because of the way they were able to draw districts last time. virginia went three points for the president. a very careful effort to draw those lines. it is hard to claim to have the public behind you because you have drawn the line
are looking at, as you said, an environment in which people are in panic mode over the fiscal cliff. i think there is a lot of support, actually, because the population does not seem to understand what the fiscal cliff is and what it means. what they are hearing on television is a lot of hype about what will happen if the fiscal cliff is not avoided. that is actually generating quite a bit of support for both sides to come together. it seems adult. it seems like the right thing to do. put your partisan differences aside for the country, and find some way to avoid the cliff. what that means in practice is striking some kind of deal, what we have heard of, as a grand bargain. it is important to keep in mind that the grand bargain itself, is really a form of austerity. this is an austerity plan. when you have an economy that is still struggling to find its feet, and you are talking about imposing austerity, i think we have seen pretty clearly, watching europe over the last 3.5 years -- that is not a good idea. we definitely have time to start -- to stop and get this right, before we follow gree
